Katrin Schmidt

I’m a Research Scientist in the School of Biology at Georgia Tech focusing on the phenotypic outcomes and genetic underpinnings of predator-induced evolution of multicellularity in Chlamydomonas.

During my PhD, under supervision of Thomas Mock  at the University of East Anglia, I investigated the physiological and molecular long-term thermal adaptation mechanisms in the model diatom Thalassiosira pseudonana using experimental evolution approaches. This research involved physiological methods to characterize the evolved cell lines and, furthermore, genome-wide transcriptomics to identify evolutionary relevant genes.
